If you are at all concerned about your privacy on Facebook–and you should be– then you might be interested in a nifty bookmark tool by ReclaimPrivacy.org I came across today via Mike Melanson of ReadWriteWeb . According to Mike:
The bookmarklet is easy to install and this is what it looked like after it ran a scan on my own Facebook privacy settings.
To see if your Facebook account privacy settings pass, all you need to do is follow these directions from Mike’s article:
To run the bookmarklet and see how private you may or may not be on Facebook, simply follow these directions:
- Drag this link to your web browser bookmarks bar: Scan for Privacy
- Log in to facebook.com and then click that bookmarklet
- You will see a series of privacy scans that inspect your privacy settings and warn you about settings that might be unexpectedly public.
